Hey, I've been in the other forum for Maint and Repairs. Just saw this thread here. My 4th coil pack in ten months failed yesterday; took my Audi in today (A4 2005 1.8 Quattro). Yes, I was told there is a recall pending for my Audi. And they have an "exception" to do the fix in advance if people come in w/ failed coils. So, allegedly, they replaced all my suspect coils under the original warranty, long since expired. Nothing out of pocket. Woo Hoo! (As a rule of thumb, if a certain car part gets its own discussion thread on Edmunds, they should probably issue a recall.)

I just got a notice that I am suppose to take my car in for an ignition coil inspection two days before I am going on a road trip. My local audi dealer knows nothing about it and says don't worry about it. Have any Q7 owners had ignition coils fail yet?

#29 of 87 Okay to drive with ignition coil problem?
Nov 29, 2009 (9:22 am)
This could be a really stupid question, but is it okay to drive once this ignition coil problem has reared its ugly head? I was 5 minutes on the road in my A4 today and it became hard to shift and the engine felt like it was seizing. I pulled over and the car was running very rough in neutral. The engine light came on. My question is if it's bad for the car to drive it to the dealership, or if it's better to have it towed. Thanks for all the helpful info in this forum. I was afraid there was something terribly wrong, but this seems to be a common issue (hence the recall). Thanks!

Are there still problems in new A4s? For the first time ever I took interest in an Audi, and in an A4, and I read these things

Aldi is now making a recall and will fix the ignition coil problem or reimburse you if you had the fixed already.
